Original Starbucks Post

I moved this post to make way for my Starbucks Liquor Recipes Post.
Today was a pretty busy bussiness-day. I started out my morning with my daily stock research, followed by 3 hours of school. Immediately after class I jetted over to Morgan Stanley to meet with the head of the Austin branch. He graciously gave me a tour of the office and what they did there, and we talked stocks for quite some time.

I then spent some time with a friend talking about his business venture with 42-Below vodka. I then did a presentation for the University Investors Association about how to get started in stocks, and some of my personal picks which included: GE, PDCO, NWSB and FO.

Some interesting news concerning one of my stock holdings, Fortune Brands (FO), is their new line of Starbucks Liquor. They were testing it regionally, including here in Texas where I first tried it. IT IS AMAZING. I think it will easily take over Khalua as the most popular coffee-liquor.

Starbucks liquor rolled out nationally today, with Fortune Brands holding a big stake. Starbucks developed the liquor with Forutne Brands, and the distributor Future Brands, LLC (A company owned by Fortune Brands) will be the primary distributor. If the rest of the country agrees on how good Starbucks Liquor is, I think FO’s next earnings statement will look nice and green!

Quick Recipe:

–2 oz. Starbucks Liquor
–2 oz. milk
–Shake with ice and pour. Delicious!
–Blend with ice for a Frappuchino

    Get ready for the most fabulous donuts you’ve ever tasted.Using only the best ingredients money can buy has made us a huge hit amongst celebrities across the country. No greasy aftertaste, zero trans fats,very low total fat (only 3 – 4 grams per donut) and 25% fewer calories. These are real donuts made with real donut ingredients.
    Our patent pending cooking process avoids deep frying creating a light, fluffy donut that you will love! No grease-no guilt just a really great donut!
    When our Boston Cream donut was compared side by side to a Krispy Kreme Boston Cream donut on the CBS Morning Show by their nutritionist, not only did they say it tasted great but It actually showed our donut only had 3.8 grams of fat compared to the other donuts 20 grams of fat and our donut was actually larger! (click on the CBS logo to see the video)

    Holey Donuts!(tm) has gained tremendous popularity and much critical acclaim with celebrities from Broadway to L.A, “there is nothing “low fat” about the taste of these donuts” says one taster. Holey Donuts! is such a smart concept now we can eat more donuts and not look like one!

    Seen on the CBS morning show.Mentioned in Every Day with Rachael Ray,The New York Daily News,Yahoo Finance and even MSNBC online has written about our donuts .
    FDA approved lab testing proves low fat claims.
    Because our donuts are so low in fat and contain no hydrogenated oils they must be kept frozen untill ready to enjoy -So we ship frozen via Fed Ex,usually your donuts arrive the next day.

    The Holy Grail of Donuts…the Low Fat Donut
    Forget the ridiculous hype on the new zero trans fat donuts out there.
    You should do a story about Holey Donuts!, based out of Brooklyn. They
    are Ultra Low Fat, Zero Trans Fats and FABULOUS. Zone Diet even buys
    from them. http://www.holeydonuts.net/
